New York City is known as a place for everyone - a city of boundless opportunity for those who’ve succeeded and for those striving to reach their dreams.
Today, New Yorkers are struggling more than ever.
30% of New Yorkers spend half their income on rent.
Less than HALF of low-income children are ready for school by age 5, compared to 75% of higher income peers.
